Cardinals football team ends season with 4-5 record
By HARV HANSEN
Easton Valley River Hawks showed no signs of last week’s disappointing loss to Turkey Valley. EV scored 39 points in the first quarter and dominated the West Central Blue Devils from the kickoff to the final horn.
After a Blue Devils punt, the River Hawks scored on the second play as Nate Trenkamp threw a touchdown pass to junior Porter Fuegen for the River Hawks’ first touchdown. The River Hawks recovered a fumble on the nine yard line on the ensuing kickoff.
Senior Reid Hinerichsen ran the ball two times for nine yards for a touchdown on senior night. The River Hawks led 14-0 two minutes in the game and never looked back, winning 73-6
Trenkamp threw 12 passes and completed 10 for 181 yards with three touchdowns. Trenkamp played only one series in the second half, throwing one pass to Cade Jargo for 14 yards.
Senior Kadin Graves ran four yards for a touchdown right before halftime.
The River Hawks qualified for the eight-player playoffs. The No. 6-seed River Hawks travel to Reinbeck to take on No. 13 Gladbrook-Reinbeck this Friday.
